@section Features
QEMU is a FAST! processor emulator using dynamic translation to
achieve good emulation speed.
QEMU has two operating modes:
@itemize
@cindex operating modes
@item
@cindex system emulation
Full system emulation. In this mode, QEMU emulates a full system (for
example a PC), including one or several processors and various
peripherals. It can be used to launch different Operating Systems
without rebooting the PC or to debug system code.
@item
@cindex user mode emulation
User mode emulation. In this mode, QEMU can launch
processes compiled for one CPU on another CPU. It can be used to
launch the Wine Windows API emulator (@url{http://www.winehq.org}) or
to ease cross-compilation and cross-debugging.
@end itemize
QEMU can run without an host kernel driver and yet gives acceptable
performance.
For system emulation, the following hardware targets are supported:

@item
Cirrus CLGD 5446 PCI VGA card or dummy VGA card with Bochs VESA
extensions (hardware level, including all non standard modes).
@item
PS/2 mouse and keyboard
@item
2 PCI IDE interfaces with hard disk and CD-ROM support
@item
Floppy disk
@item
PCI and ISA network adapters
@item
Serial ports
@item
Creative SoundBlaster 16 sound card
@item
ENSONIQ AudioPCI ES1370 sound card
@item
Intel 82801AA AC97 Audio compatible sound card
@item
Intel HD Audio Controller and HDA codec
@item
Adlib (OPL2) - Yamaha YM3812 compatible chip
@item
Gravis Ultrasound GF1 sound card
@item
CS4231A compatible sound card
@item
PCI UHCI USB controller and a virtual USB hub.
@end itemize
SMP is supported with up to 255 CPUs.
Note that adlib, gus and cs4231a are only available when QEMU was
configured with --audio-card-list option containing the name(s) of
required card(s).
QEMU uses the PC BIOS from the Bochs project and the Plex86/Bochs LGPL
VGA BIOS.
QEMU uses YM3812 emulation by Tatsuyuki Satoh.
QEMU uses GUS emulation (GUSEMU32 @url{http://www.deinmeister.de/gusemu/})
by Tibor "TS" Schütz.
Not that, by default, GUS shares IRQ(7) with parallel ports and so
qemu must be told to not have parallel ports to have working GUS
@example
qemu dos.img -soundhw gus -parallel none
@end example
Alternatively:
@example
qemu dos.img -device gus,irq=5
@end example
Or some other unclaimed IRQ.
CS4231A is the chip used in Windows Sound System and GUSMAX products

@node pcsys_monitor
@section QEMU Monitor
@cindex QEMU monitor
The QEMU monitor is used to give complex commands to the QEMU
emulator. You can use it to:
@itemize @minus
@item
Remove or insert removable media images
(such as CD-ROM or floppies).
@item
Freeze/unfreeze the Virtual Machine (VM) and save or restore its state
from a disk file.
@item Inspect the VM state without an external debugger.
@end itemize
@subsection Commands
The following commands are available:
@include qemu-monitor.texi
@subsection Integer expressions
The monitor understands integers expressions for every integer
argument. You can use register names to get the value of specifics
CPU registers by prefixing them with @emph{$}.
@node disk_images
@section Disk Images
Since version 0.6.1, QEMU supports many disk image formats, including
growable disk images (their size increase as non empty sectors are
written), compressed and encrypted disk images. Version 0.8.3 added
the new qcow2 disk image format which is essential to support VM
snapshots.

@end menu
@node disk_images_quickstart
@subsection Quick start for disk image creation
You can create a disk image with the command:
@example
qemu-img create myimage.img mysize
@end example
where @var{myimage.img} is the disk image filename and @var{mysize} is its
size in kilobytes. You can add an @code{M} suffix to give the size in
megabytes and a @code{G} suffix for gigabytes.
See @ref{qemu_img_invocation} for more information.
@node disk_images_snapshot_mode
@subsection Snapshot mode
If you use the option @option{-snapshot}, all disk images are
considered as read only. When sectors in written, they are written in
a temporary file created in @file{/tmp}. You can however force the
write back to the raw disk images by using the @code{commit} monitor
command (or @key{C-a s} in the serial console).
@node vm_snapshots
@subsection VM snapshots
VM snapshots are snapshots of the complete virtual machine including
CPU state, RAM, device state and the content of all the writable
disks. In order to use VM snapshots, you must have at least one non
removable and writable block device using the @code{qcow2} disk image
format. Normally this device is the first virtual hard drive.
Use the monitor command @code{savevm} to create a new VM snapshot or
replace an existing one. A human readable name can be assigned to each
snapshot in addition to its numerical ID.
Use @code{loadvm} to restore a VM snapshot and @code{delvm} to remove
a VM snapshot. @code{info snapshots} lists the available snapshots
with their associated information:
@example
(qemu) info snapshots
Snapshot devices: hda
Snapshot list (from hda):
ID TAG VM SIZE DATE VM CLOCK
1 start 41M 2006-08-06 12:38:02 00:00:14.954
2 40M 2006-08-06 12:43:29 00:00:18.633
3 msys 40M 2006-08-06 12:44:04 00:00:23.514
@end example
A VM snapshot is made of a VM state info (its size is shown in
@code{info snapshots}) and a snapshot of every writable disk image.
The VM state info is stored in the first @code{qcow2} non removable
and writable block device. The disk image snapshots are stored in
every disk image. The size of a snapshot in a disk image is difficult
to evaluate and is not shown by @code{info snapshots} because the
associated disk sectors are shared among all the snapshots to save
disk space (otherwise each snapshot would need a full copy of all the
disk images).
When using the (unrelated) @code{-snapshot} option
(@ref{disk_images_snapshot_mode}), you can always make VM snapshots,
but they are deleted as soon as you exit QEMU.
VM snapshots currently have the following known limitations:
@itemize
@item
They cannot cope with removable devices if they are removed or
inserted after a snapshot is done.
@item
A few device drivers still have incomplete snapshot support so their
state is not saved or restored properly (in particular USB).
@end itemize
@node qemu_img_invocation
@subsection @code{qemu-img} Invocation
@include qemu-img.texi
@node qemu_nbd_invocation
@subsection @code{qemu-nbd} Invocation
@include qemu-nbd.texi
@node host_drives
@subsection Using host drives
In addition to disk image files, QEMU can directly access host
devices. We describe here the usage for QEMU version >= 0.8.3.
@subsubsection Linux
On Linux, you can directly use the host device filename instead of a
disk image filename provided you have enough privileges to access
it. For example, use @file{/dev/cdrom} to access to the CDROM or
@file{/dev/fd0} for the floppy.
@table @code
@item CD
You can specify a CDROM device even if no CDROM is loaded. QEMU has
specific code to detect CDROM insertion or removal. CDROM ejection by
the guest OS is supported. Currently only data CDs are supported.
@item Floppy
You can specify a floppy device even if no floppy is loaded. Floppy
removal is currently not detected accurately (if you change floppy
without doing floppy access while the floppy is not loaded, the guest
OS will think that the same floppy is loaded).
@item Hard disks
Hard disks can be used. Normally you must specify the whole disk
(@file{/dev/hdb} instead of @file{/dev/hdb1}) so that the guest OS can
see it as a partitioned disk. WARNING: unless you know what you do, it
is better to only make READ-ONLY accesses to the hard disk otherwise
you may corrupt your host data (use the @option{-snapshot} command
line option or modify the device permissions accordingly).
@end table
@subsubsection Windows
@table @code
@item CD
The preferred syntax is the drive letter (e.g. @file{d:}). The
alternate syntax @file{\\.\d:} is supported. @file{/dev/cdrom} is
supported as an alias to the first CDROM drive.
Currently there is no specific code to handle removable media, so it
is better to use the @code{change} or @code{eject} monitor commands to
change or eject media.
@item Hard disks
Hard disks can be used with the syntax: @file{\\.\PhysicalDrive@var{N}}
where @var{N} is the drive number (0 is the first hard disk).
WARNING: unless you know what you do, it is better to only make
READ-ONLY accesses to the hard disk otherwise you may corrupt your
host data (use the @option{-snapshot} command line so that the
modifications are written in a temporary file).
@end table
@subsubsection Mac OS X
@file{/dev/cdrom} is an alias to the first CDROM.
Currently there is no specific code to handle removable media, so it
is better to use the @code{change} or @code{eject} monitor commands to
change or eject media.
@node disk_images_fat_images
@subsection Virtual FAT disk images
QEMU can automatically create a virtual FAT disk image from a
directory tree. In order to use it, just type:
@example
qemu linux.img -hdb fat:/my_directory
@end example
Then you access access to all the files in the @file{/my_directory}
directory without having to copy them in a disk image or to export
them via SAMBA or NFS. The default access is @emph{read-only}.
Floppies can be emulated with the @code{:floppy:} option:
@example
qemu linux.img -fda fat:floppy:/my_directory
@end example
A read/write support is available for testing (beta stage) with the
@code{:rw:} option:
@example
qemu linux.img -fda fat:floppy:rw:/my_directory
@end example
What you should @emph{never} do:
@itemize
@item use non-ASCII filenames ;
@item use "-snapshot" together with ":rw:" ;
@item expect it to work when loadvm'ing ;
@item write to the FAT directory on the host system while accessing it with the guest system.
@end itemize
@node disk_images_nbd
@subsection NBD access
QEMU can access directly to block device exported using the Network Block Device
protocol.
@example
qemu linux.img -hdb nbd:my_nbd_server.mydomain.org:1024
@end example
If the NBD server is located on the same host, you can use an unix socket instead
of an inet socket:
@example
qemu linux.img -hdb nbd:unix:/tmp/my_socket
@end example
In this case, the block device must be exported using qemu-nbd:
@example
qemu-nbd --socket=/tmp/my_socket my_disk.qcow2
@end example
The use of qemu-nbd allows to share a disk between several guests:
@example
qemu-nbd --socket=/tmp/my_socket --share=2 my_disk.qcow2
@end example
and then you can use it with two guests:
@example
qemu linux1.img -hdb nbd:unix:/tmp/my_socket
qemu linux2.img -hdb nbd:unix:/tmp/my_socket
@end example
If the nbd-server uses named exports (since NBD 2.9.18), you must use the
"exportname" option:
@example
qemu -cdrom nbd:localhost:exportname=debian-500-ppc-netinst
qemu -cdrom nbd:localhost:exportname=openSUSE-11.1-ppc-netinst
@end example
@node disk_images_sheepdog
@subsection Sheepdog disk images
Sheepdog is a distributed storage system for QEMU. It provides highly
available block level storage volumes that can be attached to
QEMU-based virtual machines.
You can create a Sheepdog disk image with the command:
@example
qemu-img create sheepdog:@var{image} @var{size}
@end example
where @var{image} is the Sheepdog image name and @var{size} is its
size.
To import the existing @var{filename} to Sheepdog, you can use a
convert command.
@example
qemu-img convert @var{filename} sheepdog:@var{image}
@end example
You can boot from the Sheepdog disk image with the command:
@example
qemu sheepdog:@var{image}
@end example
You can also create a snapshot of the Sheepdog image like qcow2.
@example
qemu-img snapshot -c @var{tag} sheepdog:@var{image}
@end example
where @var{tag} is a tag name of the newly created snapshot.
To boot from the Sheepdog snapshot, specify the tag name of the
snapshot.
@example
qemu sheepdog:@var{image}:@var{tag}
@end example
You can create a cloned image from the existing snapshot.
@example
qemu-img create -b sheepdog:@var{base}:@var{tag} sheepdog:@var{image}
@end example
where @var{base} is a image name of the source snapshot and @var{tag}
is its tag name.
If the Sheepdog daemon doesn't run on the local host, you need to
specify one of the Sheepdog servers to connect to.
@example
qemu-img create sheepdog:@var{hostname}:@var{port}:@var{image} @var{size}
qemu sheepdog:@var{hostname}:@var{port}:@var{image}
@end example
@node pcsys_network
@section Network emulation
QEMU can simulate several network cards (PCI or ISA cards on the PC
target) and can connect them to an arbitrary number of Virtual Local
Area Networks (VLANs). Host TAP devices can be connected to any QEMU
VLAN. VLAN can be connected between separate instances of QEMU to
simulate large networks. For simpler usage, a non privileged user mode
network stack can replace the TAP device to have a basic network
connection.
@subsection VLANs
QEMU simulates several VLANs. A VLAN can be symbolised as a virtual
connection between several network devices. These devices can be for
example QEMU virtual Ethernet cards or virtual Host ethernet devices
(TAP devices).
@subsection Using TAP network interfaces
This is the standard way to connect QEMU to a real network. QEMU adds
a virtual network device on your host (called @code{tapN}), and you
can then configure it as if it was a real ethernet card.
@subsubsection Linux host
As an example, you can download the @file{linux-test-xxx.tar.gz}
archive and copy the script @file{qemu-ifup} in @file{/etc} and
configure properly @code{sudo} so that the command @code{ifconfig}
contained in @file{qemu-ifup} can be executed as root. You must verify
that your host kernel supports the TAP network interfaces: the
device @file{/dev/net/tun} must be present.
See @ref{sec_invocation} to have examples of command lines using the
TAP network interfaces.
@subsubsection Windows host
There is a virtual ethernet driver for Windows 2000/XP systems, called
TAP-Win32. But it is not included in standard QEMU for Windows,
so you will need to get it separately. It is part of OpenVPN package,
so download OpenVPN from : @url{http://openvpn.net/}.
@subsection Using the user mode network stack
By using the option @option{-net user} (default configuration if no
@option{-net} option is specified), QEMU uses a completely user mode
network stack (you don't need root privilege to use the virtual
network). The virtual network configuration is the following:
@example
QEMU VLAN <------> Firewall/DHCP server <-----> Internet
| (10.0.2.2)
|
----> DNS server (10.0.2.3)
|
----> SMB server (10.0.2.4)
@end example
The QEMU VM behaves as if it was behind a firewall which blocks all
incoming connections. You can use a DHCP client to automatically
configure the network in the QEMU VM. The DHCP server assign addresses
to the hosts starting from 10.0.2.15.
In order to check that the user mode network is working, you can ping
the address 10.0.2.2 and verify that you got an address in the range
10.0.2.x from the QEMU virtual DHCP server.
Note that @code{ping} is not supported reliably to the internet as it
would require root privileges. It means you can only ping the local
router (10.0.2.2).
When using the built-in TFTP server, the router is also the TFTP
server.
When using the @option{-redir} option, TCP or UDP connections can be
redirected from the host to the guest. It allows for example to
redirect X11, telnet or SSH connections.
@subsection Connecting VLANs between QEMU instances
Using the @option{-net socket} option, it is possible to make VLANs
that span several QEMU instances. See @ref{sec_invocation} to have a
basic example.
@node pcsys_other_devs
@section Other Devices
@subsection Inter-VM Shared Memory device
With KVM enabled on a Linux host, a shared memory device is available. Guests
map a POSIX shared memory region into the guest as a PCI device that enables
zero-copy communication to the application level of the guests. The basic
syntax is:
@example
qemu -device ivshmem,size=<size in format accepted by -m>[,shm=<shm name>]
@end example
If desired, interrupts can be sent between guest VMs accessing the same shared
memory region. Interrupt support requires using a shared memory server and
using a chardev socket to connect to it. The code for the shared memory server
is qemu.git/contrib/ivshmem-server. An example syntax when using the shared
memory server is:
@example
qemu -device ivshmem,size=<size in format accepted by -m>[,chardev=<id>]
[,msi=on][,ioeventfd=on][,vectors=n][,role=peer|master]
qemu -chardev socket,path=<path>,id=<id>
@end example
When using the server, the guest will be assigned a VM ID (>=0) that allows guests
using the same server to communicate via interrupts. Guests can read their
VM ID from a device register (see example code). Since receiving the shared
memory region from the server is asynchronous, there is a (small) chance the
guest may boot before the shared memory is attached. To allow an application
to ensure shared memory is attached, the VM ID register will return -1 (an
invalid VM ID) until the memory is attached. Once the shared memory is
attached, the VM ID will return the guest's valid VM ID. With these semantics,
the guest application can check to ensure the shared memory is attached to the
guest before proceeding.
The @option{role} argument can be set to either master or peer and will affect
how the shared memory is migrated. With @option{role=master}, the guest will
copy the shared memory on migration to the destination host. With
@option{role=peer}, the guest will not be able to migrate with the device attached.
With the @option{peer} case, the device should be detached and then reattached
after migration using the PCI hotplug support.
@node direct_linux_boot
@section Direct Linux Boot
This section explains how to launch a Linux kernel inside QEMU without
having to make a full bootable image. It is very useful for fast Linux
kernel testing.
The syntax is:
@example
qemu -kernel arch/i386/boot/bzImage -hda root-2.4.20.img -append "root=/dev/hda"
@end example
Use @option{-kernel} to provide the Linux kernel image and
@option{-append} to give the kernel command line arguments. The
@option{-initrd} option can be used to provide an INITRD image.
When using the direct Linux boot, a disk image for the first hard disk
@file{hda} is required because its boot sector is used to launch the
Linux kernel.
If you do not need graphical output, you can disable it and redirect
the virtual serial port and the QEMU monitor to the console with the
@option{-nographic} option. The typical command line is:
@example
qemu -kernel arch/i386/boot/bzImage -hda root-2.4.20.img \
-append "root=/dev/hda console=ttyS0" -nographic
@end example
Use @key{Ctrl-a c} to switch between the serial console and the
monitor (@pxref{pcsys_keys}).
@node pcsys_usb
@section USB emulation
QEMU emulates a PCI UHCI USB controller. You can virtually plug
virtual USB devices or real host USB devices (experimental, works only
on Linux hosts). Qemu will automatically create and connect virtual USB hubs
as necessary to connect multiple USB devices.
@menu
* usb_devices::
* host_usb_devices::
@end menu
@node usb_devices
@subsection Connecting USB devices
USB devices can be connected with the @option{-usbdevice} commandline option
or the @code{usb_add} monitor command. Available devices are:
@table @code
@item mouse
Virtual Mouse. This will override the PS/2 mouse emulation when activated.
@item tablet
Pointer device that uses absolute coordinates (like a touchscreen).
This means qemu is able to report the mouse position without having
to grab the mouse. Also overrides the PS/2 mouse emulation when activated.
@item disk:@var{file}

(Linux only)
@item host:@var{vendor_id:product_id}
Pass through the host device identified by @var{vendor_id:product_id}
(Linux only)
@item wacom-tablet
Virtual Wacom PenPartner tablet. This device is similar to the @code{tablet}
above but it can be used with the tslib library because in addition to touch
coordinates it reports touch pressure.
@item keyboard
Standard USB keyboard. Will override the PS/2 keyboard (if present).
@item serial:[vendorid=@var{vendor_id}][,product_id=@var{product_id}]:@var{dev}
Serial converter. This emulates an FTDI FT232BM chip connected to host character
device @var{dev}. The available character devices are the same as for the
@code{-serial} option. The @code{vendorid} and @code{productid} options can be
used to override the default 0403:6001. For instance,
@example
usb_add serial:productid=FA00:tcp:192.168.0.2:4444
@end example
will connect to tcp port 4444 of ip 192.168.0.2, and plug that to the virtual
serial converter, faking a Matrix Orbital LCD Display (USB ID 0403:FA00).
@item braille
Braille device. This will use BrlAPI to display the braille output on a real
or fake device.
@item net:@var{options}
Network adapter that supports CDC ethernet and RNDIS protocols. @var{options}
specifies NIC options as with @code{-net nic,}@var{options} (see description).
For instance, user-mode networking can be used with
@example
qemu [...OPTIONS...] -net user,vlan=0 -usbdevice net:vlan=0

@node host_usb_devices
@subsection Using host USB devices on a Linux host
WARNING: this is an experimental feature. QEMU will slow down when
using it. USB devices requiring real time streaming (i.e. USB Video
Cameras) are not supported yet.
@enumerate
@item If you use an early Linux 2.4 kernel, verify that no Linux driver
is actually using the USB device. A simple way to do that is simply to
disable the corresponding kernel module by renaming it from @file{mydriver.o}
to @file{mydriver.o.disabled}.
@item Verify that @file{/proc/bus/usb} is working (most Linux distributions should enable it by default). You should see something like that:
@example
ls /proc/bus/usb
001 devices drivers
@end example
@item Since only root can access to the USB devices directly, you can either launch QEMU as root or change the permissions of the USB devices you want to use. For testing, the following suffices:
@example
chown -R myuid /proc/bus/usb
@end example
@item Launch QEMU and do in the monitor:
@example
info usbhost
Device 1.2, speed 480 Mb/s
Class 00: USB device 1234:5678, USB DISK
@end example
You should see the list of the devices you can use (Never try to use
hubs, it won't work).
@item Add the device in QEMU by using:
@example
usb_add host:1234:5678
@end example
Normally the guest OS should report that a new USB device is
plugged. You can use the option @option{-usbdevice} to do the same.
@item Now you can try to use the host USB device in QEMU.
@end enumerate
When relaunching QEMU, you may have to unplug and plug again the USB
device to make it work again (this is a bug).
@node vnc_security
@section VNC security
The VNC server capability provides access to the graphical console
of the guest VM across the network. This has a number of security
considerations depending on the deployment scenarios.
@menu
* vnc_sec_none::
* vnc_sec_password::
* vnc_sec_certificate::
* vnc_sec_certificate_verify::
* vnc_sec_certificate_pw::
* vnc_sec_sasl::
* vnc_sec_certificate_sasl::
* vnc_generate_cert::
* vnc_setup_sasl::
@end menu
@node vnc_sec_none
@subsection Without passwords
The simplest VNC server setup does not include any form of authentication.
For this setup it is recommended to restrict it to listen on a UNIX domain
socket only. For example
@example
qemu [...OPTIONS...] -vnc unix:/home/joebloggs/.qemu-myvm-vnc
@end example
This ensures that only users on local box with read/write access to that
path can access the VNC server. To securely access the VNC server from a
remote machine, a combination of netcat+ssh can be used to provide a secure
tunnel.
@node vnc_sec_password
@subsection With passwords
The VNC protocol has limited support for password based authentication. Since
the protocol limits passwords to 8 characters it should not be considered
to provide high security. The password can be fairly easily brute-forced by
a client making repeat connections. For this reason, a VNC server using password
authentication should be restricted to only listen on the loopback interface
or UNIX domain sockets. Password authentication is requested with the @code{password}
option, and then once QEMU is running the password is set with the monitor. Until
the monitor is used to set the password all clients will be rejected.
@example
qemu [...OPTIONS...] -vnc :1,password -monitor stdio
(qemu) change vnc password
Password: ********
(qemu)
@end example
@node vnc_sec_certificate
@subsection With x509 certificates
The QEMU VNC server also implements the VeNCrypt extension allowing use of
TLS for encryption of the session, and x509 certificates for authentication.
The use of x509 certificates is strongly recommended, because TLS on its
own is susceptible to man-in-the-middle attacks. Basic x509 certificate
support provides a secure session, but no authentication. This allows any
client to connect, and provides an encrypted session.
@example
qemu [...OPTIONS...] -vnc :1,tls,x509=/etc/pki/qemu -monitor stdio
@end example
In the above example @code{/etc/pki/qemu} should contain at least three files,
@code{ca-cert.pem}, @code{server-cert.pem} and @code{server-key.pem}. Unprivileged
users will want to use a private directory, for example @code{$HOME/.pki/qemu}.
NB the @code{server-key.pem} file should be protected with file mode 0600 to
only be readable by the user owning it.
@node vnc_sec_certificate_verify
@subsection With x509 certificates and client verification
Certificates can also provide a means to authenticate the client connecting.
The server will request that the client provide a certificate, which it will
then validate against the CA certificate. This is a good choice if deploying
in an environment with a private internal certificate authority.
@example
qemu [...OPTIONS...] -vnc :1,tls,x509verify=/etc/pki/qemu -monitor stdio
@end example
@node vnc_sec_certificate_pw
@subsection With x509 certificates, client verification and passwords
Finally, the previous method can be combined with VNC password authentication
to provide two layers of authentication for clients.
@example
qemu [...OPTIONS...] -vnc :1,password,tls,x509verify=/etc/pki/qemu -monitor stdio
(qemu) change vnc password
Password: ********
(qemu)
@end example
@node vnc_sec_sasl
@subsection With SASL authentication
The SASL authentication method is a VNC extension, that provides an
easily extendable, pluggable authentication method. This allows for
integration with a wide range of authentication mechanisms, such as
PAM, GSSAPI/Kerberos, LDAP, SQL databases, one-time keys and more.
The strength of the authentication depends on the exact mechanism
configured. If the chosen mechanism also provides a SSF layer, then
it will encrypt the datastream as well.
Refer to the later docs on how to choose the exact SASL mechanism
used for authentication, but assuming use of one supporting SSF,
then QEMU can be launched with:
@example
qemu [...OPTIONS...] -vnc :1,sasl -monitor stdio
@end example
@node vnc_sec_certificate_sasl
@subsection With x509 certificates and SASL authentication
If the desired SASL authentication mechanism does not supported
SSF layers, then it is strongly advised to run it in combination
with TLS and x509 certificates. This provides securely encrypted
data stream, avoiding risk of compromising of the security
credentials. This can be enabled, by combining the 'sasl' option
with the aforementioned TLS + x509 options:
@example
qemu [...OPTIONS...] -vnc :1,tls,x509,sasl -monitor stdio
@end example
@node vnc_generate_cert
@subsection Generating certificates for VNC
The GNU TLS packages provides a command called @code{certtool} which can
be used to generate certificates and keys in PEM format. At a minimum it
is necessary to setup a certificate authority, and issue certificates to
each server. If using certificates for authentication, then each client
will also need to be issued a certificate. The recommendation is for the
server to keep its certificates in either @code{/etc/pki/qemu} or for
unprivileged users in @code{$HOME/.pki/qemu}.
@menu
* vnc_generate_ca::
* vnc_generate_server::
* vnc_generate_client::
@end menu
@node vnc_generate_ca
@subsubsection Setup the Certificate Authority
This step only needs to be performed once per organization / organizational
unit. First the CA needs a private key. This key must be kept VERY secret
and secure. If this key is compromised the entire trust chain of the certificates
issued with it is lost.
@example
# certtool --generate-privkey > ca-key.pem
@end example
A CA needs to have a public certificate. For simplicity it can be a self-signed
certificate, or one issue by a commercial certificate issuing authority. To
generate a self-signed certificate requires one core piece of information, the
name of the organization.
@example
# cat > ca.info <<EOF
cn = Name of your organization
ca
cert_signing_key
EOF
# certtool --generate-self-signed \
--load-privkey ca-key.pem
--template ca.info \
--outfile ca-cert.pem
@end example
The @code{ca-cert.pem} file should be copied to all servers and clients wishing to utilize
TLS support in the VNC server. The @code{ca-key.pem} must not be disclosed/copied at all.
@node vnc_generate_server
@subsubsection Issuing server certificates
Each server (or host) needs to be issued with a key and certificate. When connecting
the certificate is sent to the client which validates it against the CA certificate.
The core piece of information for a server certificate is the hostname. This should
be the fully qualified hostname that the client will connect with, since the client
will typically also verify the hostname in the certificate. On the host holding the
secure CA private key:
@example
# cat > server.info <<EOF
organization = Name of your organization
cn = server.foo.example.com
tls_www_server
encryption_key
signing_key
EOF
# certtool --generate-privkey > server-key.pem
# certtool --generate-certificate \
--load-ca-certificate ca-cert.pem \
--load-ca-privkey ca-key.pem \
--load-privkey server server-key.pem \
--template server.info \
--outfile server-cert.pem
@end example
The @code{server-key.pem} and @code{server-cert.pem} files should now be securely copied
to the server for which they were generated. The @code{server-key.pem} is security
sensitive and should be kept protected with file mode 0600 to prevent disclosure.
@node vnc_generate_client
@subsubsection Issuing client certificates
If the QEMU VNC server is to use the @code{x509verify} option to validate client
certificates as its authentication mechanism, each client also needs to be issued
a certificate. The client certificate contains enough metadata to uniquely identify
the client, typically organization, state, city, building, etc. On the host holding
the secure CA private key:
@example
# cat > client.info <<EOF
country = GB
state = London
locality = London
organiazation = Name of your organization
cn = client.foo.example.com
tls_www_client
encryption_key
signing_key
EOF
# certtool --generate-privkey > client-key.pem
# certtool --generate-certificate \
--load-ca-certificate ca-cert.pem \
--load-ca-privkey ca-key.pem \
--load-privkey client-key.pem \
--template client.info \
--outfile client-cert.pem
@end example
The @code{client-key.pem} and @code{client-cert.pem} files should now be securely
copied to the client for which they were generated.
@node vnc_setup_sasl
@subsection Configuring SASL mechanisms
The following documentation assumes use of the Cyrus SASL implementation on a
Linux host, but the principals should apply to any other SASL impl. When SASL
is enabled, the mechanism configuration will be loaded from system default
SASL service config /etc/sasl2/qemu.conf. If running QEMU as an
unprivileged user, an environment variable SASL_CONF_PATH can be used
to make it search alternate locations for the service config.
The default configuration might contain
@example
mech_list: digest-md5
sasldb_path: /etc/qemu/passwd.db
@end example
This says to use the 'Digest MD5' mechanism, which is similar to the HTTP
Digest-MD5 mechanism. The list of valid usernames & passwords is maintained
in the /etc/qemu/passwd.db file, and can be updated using the saslpasswd2
command. While this mechanism is easy to configure and use, it is not
considered secure by modern standards, so only suitable for developers /
ad-hoc testing.
A more serious deployment might use Kerberos, which is done with the 'gssapi'
mechanism
@example
mech_list: gssapi
keytab: /etc/qemu/krb5.tab
@end example
For this to work the administrator of your KDC must generate a Kerberos
principal for the server, with a name of 'qemu/somehost.example.com@@EXAMPLE.COM'
replacing 'somehost.example.com' with the fully qualified host name of the
machine running QEMU, and 'EXAMPLE.COM' with the Kerberos Realm.
Other configurations will be left as an exercise for the reader. It should
be noted that only Digest-MD5 and GSSAPI provides a SSF layer for data
encryption. For all other mechanisms, VNC should always be configured to
use TLS and x509 certificates to protect security credentials from snooping.
@node gdb_usage
@section GDB usage
QEMU has a primitive support to work with gdb, so that you can do
'Ctrl-C' while the virtual machine is running and inspect its state.
In order to use gdb, launch qemu with the '-s' option. It will wait for a
gdb connection:
@example
> qemu -s -kernel arch/i386/boot/bzImage -hda root-2.4.20.img \
-append "root=/dev/hda"
Connected to host network interface: tun0
Waiting gdb connection on port 1234
@end example
Then launch gdb on the 'vmlinux' executable:
@example
> gdb vmlinux
@end example
In gdb, connect to QEMU:
@example
(gdb) target remote localhost:1234
@end example
Then you can use gdb normally. For example, type 'c' to launch the kernel:
@example
(gdb) c
@end example
Here are some useful tips in order to use gdb on system code:
@enumerate
@item
Use @code{info reg} to display all the CPU registers.
@item
Use @code{x/10i $eip} to display the code at the PC position.
@item
Use @code{set architecture i8086} to dump 16 bit code. Then use
@code{x/10i $cs*16+$eip} to dump the code at the PC position.
@end enumerate
Advanced debugging options:
The default single stepping behavior is step with the IRQs and timer service routines off. It is set this way because when gdb executes a single step it expects to advance beyond the current instruction. With the IRQs and and timer service routines on, a single step might jump into the one of the interrupt or exception vectors instead of executing the current instruction. This means you may hit the same breakpoint a number of times before executing the instruction gdb wants to have executed. Because there are rare circumstances where you want to single step into an interrupt vector the behavior can be controlled from GDB. There are three commands you can query and set the single step behavior:
@table @code
@item maintenance packet qqemu.sstepbits
This will display the MASK bits used to control the single stepping IE:
@example
(gdb) maintenance packet qqemu.sstepbits
sending: "qqemu.sstepbits"
received: "ENABLE=1,NOIRQ=2,NOTIMER=4"
@end example
@item maintenance packet qqemu.sstep
This will display the current value of the mask used when single stepping IE:
@example
(gdb) maintenance packet qqemu.sstep
sending: "qqemu.sstep"
received: "0x7"
@end example
@item maintenance packet Qqemu.sstep=HEX_VALUE
This will change the single step mask, so if wanted to enable IRQs on the single step, but not timers, you would use:
@example
(gdb) maintenance packet Qqemu.sstep=0x5
sending: "qemu.sstep=0x5"
received: "OK"
@end example
@end table
@node pcsys_os_specific
@section Target OS specific information
@subsection Linux
To have access to SVGA graphic modes under X11, use the @code{vesa} or
the @code{cirrus} X11 driver. For optimal performances, use 16 bit
color depth in the guest and the host OS.
When using a 2.6 guest Linux kernel, you should add the option
@code{clock=pit} on the kernel command line because the 2.6 Linux
kernels make very strict real time clock checks by default that QEMU
cannot simulate exactly.
When using a 2.6 guest Linux kernel, verify that the 4G/4G patch is
not activated because QEMU is slower with this patch. The QEMU
Accelerator Module is also much slower in this case. Earlier Fedora
Core 3 Linux kernel (< 2.6.9-1.724_FC3) were known to incorporate this
patch by default. Newer kernels don't have it.
@subsection Windows
If you have a slow host, using Windows 95 is better as it gives the
best speed. Windows 2000 is also a good choice.
@subsubsection SVGA graphic modes support
QEMU emulates a Cirrus Logic GD5446 Video
card. All Windows versions starting from Windows 95 should recognize
and use this graphic card. For optimal performances, use 16 bit color
depth in the guest and the host OS.
If you are using Windows XP as guest OS and if you want to use high
resolution modes which the Cirrus Logic BIOS does not support (i.e. >=
1280x1024x16), then you should use the VESA VBE virtual graphic card
(option @option{-std-vga}).
@subsubsection CPU usage reduction
Windows 9x does not correctly use the CPU HLT
instruction. The result is that it takes host CPU cycles even when
idle. You can install the utility from
@url{http://www.user.cityline.ru/~maxamn/amnhltm.zip} to solve this
problem. Note that no such tool is needed for NT, 2000 or XP.
@subsubsection Windows 2000 disk full problem
Windows 2000 has a bug which gives a disk full problem during its
installation. When installing it, use the @option{-win2k-hack} QEMU
option to enable a specific workaround. After Windows 2000 is
installed, you no longer need this option (this option slows down the
IDE transfers).
@subsubsection Windows 2000 shutdown
Windows 2000 cannot automatically shutdown in QEMU although Windows 98
can. It comes from the fact that Windows 2000 does not automatically
use the APM driver provided by the BIOS.
In order to correct that, do the following (thanks to Struan
Bartlett): go to the Control Panel => Add/Remove Hardware & Next =>
Add/Troubleshoot a device => Add a new device & Next => No, select the
hardware from a list & Next => NT Apm/Legacy Support & Next => Next
(again) a few times. Now the driver is installed and Windows 2000 now
correctly instructs QEMU to shutdown at the appropriate moment.
@subsubsection Share a directory between Unix and Windows
See @ref{sec_invocation} about the help of the option @option{-smb}.
@subsubsection Windows XP security problem
Some releases of Windows XP install correctly but give a security
error when booting:
@example
A problem is preventing Windows from accurately checking the
license for this computer. Error code: 0x800703e6.
@end example
The workaround is to install a service pack for XP after a boot in safe
mode. Then reboot, and the problem should go away. Since there is no
network while in safe mode, its recommended to download the full
installation of SP1 or SP2 and transfer that via an ISO or using the
vvfat block device ("-hdb fat:directory_which_holds_the_SP").
@subsection MS-DOS and FreeDOS
@subsubsection CPU usage reduction
DOS does not correctly use the CPU HLT instruction. The result is that
it takes host CPU cycles even when idle. You can install the utility
from @url{http://www.vmware.com/software/dosidle210.zip} to solve this
problem.

@node Quick Start
@subsection Quick Start
In order to launch a Linux process, QEMU needs the process executable
itself and all the target (x86) dynamic libraries used by it.
@itemize
@item On x86, you can just try to launch any process by using the native
libraries:
@example
qemu-i386 -L / /bin/ls
@end example
@code{-L /} tells that the x86 dynamic linker must be searched with a
@file{/} prefix.
@item Since QEMU is also a linux process, you can launch qemu with
qemu (NOTE: you can only do that if you compiled QEMU from the sources):
@example
qemu-i386 -L / qemu-i386 -L / /bin/ls
@end example
@item On non x86 CPUs, you need first to download at least an x86 glibc
(@file{qemu-runtime-i386-XXX-.tar.gz} on the QEMU web page). Ensure that
@code{LD_LIBRARY_PATH} is not set:
@example
unset LD_LIBRARY_PATH
@end example
Then you can launch the precompiled @file{ls} x86 executable:
@example
qemu-i386 tests/i386/ls
@end example
You can look at @file{scripts/qemu-binfmt-conf.sh} so that
QEMU is automatically launched by the Linux kernel when you try to
launch x86 executables. It requires the @code{binfmt_misc} module in the
Linux kernel.
@item The x86 version of QEMU is also included. You can try weird things such as:
@example
qemu-i386 /usr/local/qemu-i386/bin/qemu-i386 \
/usr/local/qemu-i386/bin/ls-i386
@end example
@end itemize
@node Wine launch
@subsection Wine launch
@itemize
@item Ensure that you have a working QEMU with the x86 glibc
distribution (see previous section). In order to verify it, you must be
able to do:
@example
qemu-i386 /usr/local/qemu-i386/bin/ls-i386
@end example
@item Download the binary x86 Wine install
(@file{qemu-XXX-i386-wine.tar.gz} on the QEMU web page).
@item Configure Wine on your account. Look at the provided script
@file{/usr/local/qemu-i386/@/bin/wine-conf.sh}. Your previous
@code{$@{HOME@}/.wine} directory is saved to @code{$@{HOME@}/.wine.org}.
@item Then you can try the example @file{putty.exe}:
@example
qemu-i386 /usr/local/qemu-i386/wine/bin/wine \
/usr/local/qemu-i386/wine/c/Program\ Files/putty.exe

Configure QEMU for Windows cross compilation:
@example
PATH=/usr/i686-pc-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/bin:$PATH ./configure --cross-prefix='i686-pc-mingw32-'
@end example
The example assumes @file{sdl-config} is installed under @file{/usr/i686-pc-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/bin} and
MinGW cross compilation tools have names like @file{i686-pc-mingw32-gcc} and @file{i686-pc-mingw32-strip}.
We set the @code{PATH} environment variable to ensure the MinGW version of @file{sdl-config} is used and
use --cross-prefix to specify the name of the cross compiler.
You can also use --prefix to set the Win32 install path which defaults to @file{c:/Program Files/Qemu}.
Under Fedora Linux, you can run:
@example
yum -y install mingw32-gcc mingw32-SDL mingw32-zlib
@end example
to get a suitable cross compilation environment.
